Museum of the Americas: Stories (Paperback)
A roadside museum with a link to the supernatural. A washed up pitching phenom remaking his life as a minor league mascot. An elderly magician concealing a devastating secret. A grown-up high school bully obsessed with her former classmate's glass eye. In Museum of the Americas, Gary Lee Miller presents a remarkable collection of stories that push the boundaries between the real and the fantastic, the universe that is seen and the one that is invisible. There are no easy answers here, no moralistic judgments, just people struggling against stacked odds to bring redemption to their lives.
Gary Lee Miller learned to tell stories in the bar rooms of northern Pennsylvania and at Vermont College of Fine Arts, where he earned his MFA. His work has appeared in a number of literary magazines, including Florida Review, Green Mountains Review, Hunger Mountain, and Chicago Quarterly Review. Gary's music writing can be found in Seven Days, Vermont's weekly source for arts, culture, and politics. He sings and plays guitar in The TrailerBlazers, a strictly hillbilly outfit.
